The President of ICMSA has welcomed the news that Minister Ross has this morning revoked the recent S.I. that mandated testing of tractors. Mr. John Comer said that the idea that farm tractors would be subject to any kind of NCT was unworkable and would simply have represented another unnecessary cost to family farms.  Mr. Comer said that credit was due to Minister Ross for recognising the regulation for the mistake it was and withdrawing it, the ICMSA President also acknowledged the efforts of Sean Canney, TD., who had worked with ICMSA to demonstrate the unsuitability of the regulations.     


Ends     23 November.
